Brazil 0 Mexico 0

As far as scoreless draws go, this was a fair doozy and I kinda called it. Any notion of Brazil as a clear favorite should be gone by now, like so many shots hammered at Memo Ochoa. The Mexico keeper stood up to all of them and his teammates held enough of the ball to keep his save total "down" to six. And just like that, CONCACAF is 3-1-1 at this World Cup.

NSC Man of the Match: Hakeem "The Dream" Ochoa*

Best goalkeeping performance I have seen since Romario shook Kasey Keller's hand...

You are dating yourself, Greg, with the Hakeem head nod. And I like it.

While Hakeem is the all time leader in blocked shots, the finger wag was Dikembe Mutumbo's signature move.
